Father's Day (5) (Saving His Daughter) - Poem by U Win Kyi

The world-wide Chinese community would celebrate,
a Father's Day on August 8 th.,
a very special date.
8,8 is pronounced in Chinese Papa,
a loving hubby of Mama.
Since the time of the first father...Adam,
millions of true stories about fathers has been told and written.
Some heart-warming, some heart-wrenching,
some sweet and loving, some bitter and aching.

Recently, from 6th floor, in suicidal attempt, a woman jumped off,
onto 4th floor balcony roof, with a loud boom her father saw her drop.
The plastic roof broke and she was caught in an iron grid.
Her hands were holding an iron rail with a weak grip.
She was struggling on the edge of roof.
He was afraid her grip of hands might get loose,
causing her fall onto the concrete pavement below,
and an instant death with a gush of blood flow.
He then took a coil of long rope,
for saving her, he had a slim hope.
But he ran up to 6th floor, tied one end of it to a big pole.
By the dangling rope, he climbed down to her...so bold.
Then he reached to her and got a firm hold,
so that he could prevent falling down below.
Then the fireman arrived and moved her to a safer place.
The onlookers were excited and amazed.
His rescue mission was very dangerous
but he didn't care a bit for himself.
A slip of hand would mean him...death.
His love for her had no match.
She was clinically depressed,
but that didn't make him any hindrance.
He is 60+ years old
and yet he is very bold.
His story will be retold and retold.

Dear readers, do you have any heart-warmer,
to share with already fathers and would-be fathers?
